How to catch Trigger Fish

Fishing for Trigger Fish out of Daytona, Ponce inlet, Cape Canaveral, Florida

Daytona, Ponce inlet Florida is one of the best places in Florida to Fish offshore in Florida… I love fishing out of Ponce Inlet.

Fishing for Trigger Fish

When searching for Triggerfish you might want to look for bottom structure, Hard bottom, reefs, and ledges.

Triggerfish prefer hard bottoms, reefs, and ledges, the gray triggerfish is abundant in near-shore and offshore locations. And are always found around these types of areas.

BOTTOM Fishing for Triggerfish on the Reefs…

There is plenty of species of fish on the reefs out of Daytona, Ponce inlet, Cape Canaveral areas like the Party grounds, East Eleven, Ten Fathoms, 16 Fathoms, 27 Fathoms,  Turtle Mound, Half North, Inside Eleven, East Ridge, Mango Hole, Long John, Red Snapper Sink, and Plenty of Artificial reefs that hold some nice fish closer to shore… But I like the natural Reefs better… Especially the deeper ones…



ROD & REEL: Use a light to medium action reel spinning or conventional will work just fine, on a boat I like to use 5 ft rod

BAITS USED FOR TRIGGERFISH: They bite shrimp and any sort of cut bait, I always use a small sliver of squid when fishing for trigger fish.

HOOKS: Small hooks are essential, you want to use small stout sharp hook.

Required to use circle hooks now.

I Normally use a 1/0 or 2/0 stout hook. Some areas require the use of a circle hook.


I like to put my hooks on a chicken rig with three hooks and a sinker.

I use a Dropper Loop knot to make my Chicken Rigs

There are a couple of good offshore maps you can but, but my Favorite is map is posted on our clubs forum…
